~On This Day In GRATEFUL DEAD History~

Acoustic GRATEFUL DEAD from the summer of 70'.

Sounds like Mickey is "playing" the drums on Candyman...lmao...sad. This version of the show sounds like the right channel has a complete different drum Get the other version...Mickey's horrible.

Why does anyone need two drummers for acoustic GOSPEL music anyway?

Amazing sound from such a primitive time for "live recordings".

Here the GRATEFUL DEAD demonstrate their love for CHRISTIAN GOSPEL Music.

It probably would have offened most fans of the GRATEFUL DEAD if they released a GOSPEL album of their favorite CHRISTIAN GOSPEL TUNES...this live show is as close as we are going to get. Too bad many of the fans of the GRATEFUL DEAD despise Christianity. You'd think they'd have more sense.

Nothing like a bunch of sinners singing Gospel.

How often did Jerome sing and play the "Ballad of Casey Jones"?

I recommend using your EQ during playback of most of the shows on the IA, this one included.

Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.

Here's one way to stream/download this show:

The IA recommends users of Windows XP view this web-page with RealPlayer.

RealPlayer is a free media player you can download at

Using RealPlayer to view this webpage, click the VBR M3U link to open the songs in the Playlist.

If your Playlist is not open, open it by clicking the Playlist icon at the lower right hand corner of RealPlayer.

Once the songs are in the Playlist, double click the song to play it, then click the record button at the lower left hand corner of Realplayer to record it.

When the red line reaches the other end click the stop button to download the song. Your song is in the RealPlayer Downloads folder.

Repeat these steps for each song.

Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD-but if you cant' do that....then STFU.

Thanks for the FREE MUSIC from 39 years ago, 1970.
